In a recent interview with the Radio Times, actress Karen Gillan who played the eleventh Doctor’s companion, Amy Pond, said she will not be in next month’s 50th Anniversary Special.
“I’m not in it, just to put that out there,” said Gillan.
So what are her plans for the 50th anniversary special?
“I’m going to watch it!”
“I think I’m going to be in America, so I’ll probably round up all the people who like to watchDoctor Who in the area. We’ll probably watch it and drink PG Tips and eat Jammy Dodgers, if I can get them.”
THR is reporting that Karen Gillan, our Amy Pond, has landed a role in Marvel’s upcoming film Guardians of the Galaxy.

So, the U.S. show Community is getting a shout out from Doctor Who’s Karen Gillan. Apparently, she loves the show and loves Inspector Spacetime, and also doesn’t mind putting herself out there to be on the show! Did you hear that, Community gods!
Wonderfully talented Alice Zhang has created some really Doctor Who art of Pond and Rory. I’m sure there’s more splendid art works of Doctor Who characters and I’m intent on finding them. For now, here you go.
